Drone Services

We are proud to offer Drone Services for Inspections and Real Estate Purposes.

Inspections

Not all roofs are flat or gently elevated and while sloped roofs are dramatic additions to any architecture, sometimes a roof is too dangerous to inspect from above without specialized climbing equipment and training. Some homes also feature turrets, towers, dormers, and other steeply pitched architectural additions. Using a drone to assist the inspection process in these locations helps provide accurate information about the condition of these features. Without a drone, the inspector would not be able to inspect certain areas on the roof. Rather than defer this portion of the inspection to others, we can inspect it from all angles which can save you time and money on inspection costs and ensure that all recommendations are non-biased. When appropriate and conditions permit, drones are part of our equipment and we provide them at no additional cost.

A drone can fly and hover over any rooftop regardless of its size or condition. Whether your roof is brand new or damaged and deteriorating, a drone captures the details with high resolution images or video. Without a drone and or roof access, the roofing can only be inspected by observation of what’s visible from the ground.

Areas where Drones can enhance an inspection:

  • Roofs
  • Chimneys and chimney caps
  • Metal flashing
  • Gutters
  • Upper gable ends
  • Plumbing and appliance vents

Real Estate

Separate your real estate listings from your competition with high-resolution photography and aerial videos that offer sweeping views of your listed properties. A bird’s eye view of the real estate listing and landscape yields valuable information about the layout of the property and the conditions. Drones are an efficient tool for capturing aerial images of real estate, particularly in rural areas.

In the real estate industry, you often hear the phrase, “location, location, location.” One of the biggest benefits of using drones for real estate is the ability to view the location of a property with respect to nearby attractions, amenities, parks, airports, etc. An aerial perspective is clearly the best way to capture the entirety of this layout.

A person operating a small UAS (drone) for commercial purposes must either hold a remote pilot airman certificate with a small UAS rating or be under the direct supervision of a person who does hold a remote pilot certificate.
